Do you mean reset the hobby grid when it is full? The "reset" function is through the green bar at the top of the grid. Is that what you were asking about?

Rosie take it from someone who used to be very anti-cloud-save it really is a very useful tool for smoother game play.

I never used to use the actual cloud-save but just the 'save' you get when you collect from the party boat or visiting other towns. Which was fine because I also never did a uninstall/reinstall either. This summer I decided to start saving to the cloud during quests and I'm very glad I did because my game went belly up after completing the Night of the Candy Monsters quest. I fought the game and my Gen1 IPad for over a month before getting a newer iPad and because I'd saved to the cloud I was able to jump right back into the game. If I hadn't saved to the cloud I would have lost all the stuff I'd earned from the quests and things before my game crashed (at least I think that's what would have happened). During quests/events i try to remember to save after completing that day's tasks or after a long or complicated task. Especially useful with all the hobby-grinding involved in events lately.

Long story short - saving to or downloading from the cloud (or doing an uninstall/reinstall) can be scary to think about but they're easy to do and so helpful if something goes wrong. The instructions here on the forum are easy enough to follow that even a semi-computer-literate person like me can feel confident doing them. I now save to the cloud a lot even if I rarely DL from it because then my saved game is there if I need it.

I want to use my LPs then reset the game so I don't lose them all doing the quest

I think you're referring to the comment I made about LPs and resetting? Sorry if I was confusing, but I was specifically just talking about doing the quest very quickly to record a video. I need tons of LPs for that. But when I am finished recording the video, I go back to my cloud saved version from before doing the quest, and then I do the quest all over again normally with no LPs or much fewer LPs.

A link to the directions about cloud saves had been posted in two posts above your first post in this topic and later in a reply to your question overthere: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=3468&p=45517#p45521
They should be easy to find now :)
Tip: Gather LPs and SPs for the quest and events.

If we skip ahead using LPs, can we avoid the glitch and get the hairstyles, since this adds more time?

I skipped with LPs and did not have any glitch. I earned/currently using all the hairstyles and hats.

What kind of celebration is this? It is more like worshipping... Maybe it is the retro way of admiring new hair styles :lol:

It took me awhile to figure out what was going on, too! The music playing out of the radio is what was coming from the Christmas card that our sims were trying so hard to turn off. They are in despair! The bits and pieces I've read of the quest seemed pretty cute, shame I was too annoyed by the quick turnaround to bother reading it all. :roll:
